Start your jazz ensemble rehearsals up right with these "to the point" and very playable warm-ups for Jazz Band. An established routine is an important part of learning and these are written by a writer with 32 years experience in public school teaching. There's opportunity for all to experiment with improvising in the safe environment of the rehearsal room. The slur exercises will develop the brass "chops." The tuning warm-up will get the players listening, and the variety of styles (swing, rock, legato ballad) will get the band ready for a productive rehearsal. Warm-ups are the right place to ensure that your "Jazz Engine" will run long and play hard.
